Re: The Rainbow Connection
...I wanted to give you the incredible outline of the Rainbows we have seen. What is absolutely incredible is that they were ALL DOUBLE, and two of them happened at EXACTLY the same time of day.

March 11, 2000 4:00pm (which means it was the next day in Jerusalem, Adar 5)
Exactly 40 days later at 4pm (it is Nisan 16 in Jerusalem, Ressurection day)
May 28, 2000 8:40pm (it is Iyyar 24 in Jerusalem). In 3 days at 8:40 pm it is Ascension day in Jerusalem, and exactly 80 days after March 11, 4pm, it is ALSO Ascension day. (Iyyar 27, or June 1, 2000)
June 5, 2000 at 8:40 pm exactly again, the most vivid and intense FULL half circle DOUBLE rainbow our family has ever seen in our lives, exactly due east, exactly where Saturn rises this time of year! (It is Sivan 3 in Jerusalem) In 3 days at 4pm it is Sivan 7 in Jerusalem. Exactly 90 days after March 11 at 4pm it is Sivan 7 in Jerusalem.
And as I said before, at 2AM in Jerusalem Sivan 7, 5760, It is PENTECOST EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

As brother Eric C. says, "See ya in the air". There is zero doubt in my mind that the Pre-Trib Rapture is around 4pm Pacific time on Friday June 9, 2000. I have already left a care package of all the scriptural materials I can in my house for those who would find them who are left behind. We are not going to use any of our electrical appliances after 3pm on Friday, because we do not want our house to burn down. And we are not going to drive anywhere, in case our car might hit some person should we be Raptured while driving it.

See you in Heaven, Agape

My reply

Thanks. Have you ever in your life seen so many double rainbows in such a short space of time? Agape

My reply

Yes, Mt. 24:24 says, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, they shall deceive the very elect." It is also in Mk. 13:22.

I doubt that this is possible, but the Greek construction should tell us for sure. Will someone that knows Greek please tell me which of the FOUR "IF" CLAUSES this is. Does it mean IF AND IT IS POSSIBLE, or IF AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE?

In II Thess. 2:12, those that believe the lie are not Christians, "That they all might be damned who believed NOT THE TRUTH."

Satan will not enter into a man until Mid-Trib, when he is cast out of Heaven down to Earth (Rev. 12) and enters into the False Prophet (Rev. 13:11). Up to that time, he is invisible. Agape

Not being able to buy oil on the Sabbath makes me think Sat. in Israel makes sense for the rapture.

This is a good site for time. Simple and effective. You can select any city/country you want.

....Israel's Sat. runs from 6 p.m. Friday to 6 p.m. Sat. Midnight Sat. would be 12:00 midnight Friday, the next minute being 12:01 a.m. Sat. That would be 4:00 p.m. Friday, USA Central time, my time, and 2:00 p.m. Friday, USA Pacific time, your time. I locked in Jerusalem time, USA Central time, and USA Pacific time, then bookmarked it so I can quickly call it up. The time changes every minute. I may just watch those minutes tick off this coming Friday. Maybe others would like to use this time link to lock in their time zone. Love

I read your page quite often and I really get thrilled when I read of the LORDS' soon return. There is one thing that is puzzeling me though. Doesn't it say that when JESUS comes back it will be in the clouds? If it is so that would mean that the entire world would have to be cloudy wouldn't it? If you have time could you give me your interpertation of this? Thank you and GOD bless you real good.

My reply

That wouldn't be necessary. Wherever he is, there will be clouds. God bless. Agape

Re: Thank you
Your prophetic research is very intriguing. I was born in 1972, "saved" at age 7 or 8 at vacation bible school but I didn't have a strong Christian upbringing. Without the "light" to keep me strong, I had become blinded by the world and was living in deception by the time I was in college around 1990-95. In spring of 1996, that all turned around very abruptly after a dream I had. Since I was very young, I've had dreams and then I've had "prophetic dreams" because they seem to come out of nowhere and don't have any correlation with my personal life. I still remember this one so clear and powerful. Since then (accept for maybe a few stubborn areas of my life) the years of 1997, 98, 99, and now 2000 have been a time of radical devotion to the Lord. NOw that I look back, the details of the dream and this 3-year "cleansing process" fall in line with what you and other end-time bible teachers are talking about. You speak of a "John the Baptist" time period of repentance before the rapture. Since 1997, is it me or do we live in a time where Jesus Christ and christian values are the hottest media topic around? It's like there's something in the air. Is it possible for believers to be "on schedule" and not even know it? I hope I am. Thank you

My reply

Thanks for sharing this with me.

> > You speak of a "John the Baptist" time period of repentance before the rapture.

I like your idea of a period of repentence like John the Baptist preached. It is very much like that. I wish I knew exactly how long he preached to see if that fits today. I think he started in the 15th year of Tiberius, which was 26 AD. I think Jesus was baptized near Tishri 1, his birthday, that year.

> > Since 1997, is it me or do we live in a time where Jesus Christ and christian values are the hottest media topic around?

I can't speak for others, but the Bible is my big interest. Agape

I can't be sure, but all that are firmly hooked to the Holy Spirit could be pulled up at once, no matter where they are. We are the Body of Christ, one body. Agape

Incoming email and my interspersed reply

Christ has returned! You are probably looking UP such that you missed his arrival. Read the scriptures again, in the last days in which direction is the Lord coming from?

*** From Marilyn: Christ comes down from Heaven. Jn. 14:2,3 says, " In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." At the Rapture, he does not put his feet on the Earth. We rise to meet him in the air. I Thess. 4:16,17 says, " the Lord himself shall DESCEND FROM HEAVEN with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord IN THE AIR: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

Can you not differentiate "Son of God" and "Son of Man"? Do you remember what Jesus reffer himself as when he talked about his second coming?

***Christ is both "Son of God" and "Son of Man." "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself" (II Cor. 5:19). The Rapture, when we rise up to meet him in the air, is not the Second Coming. Then he will put his feet on the Mt. of Olives and it will split (Zech. 14:4).

***There are two Raptures, one Pre-Trib, the other Pre-Wrath. Both are called "days of the Son of man." Lu. 17:22 says to the Tribulation saints, " The days will come, when ye shall desire to see ONE of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it." To be caught up with the wise virgins when the Bridegroom comes at the Pre-Trib Rapture, we need to have extra oil of the Holy Spirit (Mt. 25:1-13).

Look at Revelation 12, the woman clothed with the sun is not the VIRGIN Mary, nor is it Israel. Don't be TOO symbolic!

***It can't be other than Israel, for she flees into the wilderness (Rev. 12:6). According to Mt. 24:16, it is those in Judaea that are to flee into the mountains.

The seventh thundered sealed, is the bible code. The mystery of God was revealed! If you do not know how to use the bible code to tell the true messiah from the fake one, you have no excuse.

***All things must be compared with the surface text of the Bible. Only that is known truth. It is our anchor against every wind of doctrine that comes by.

Remember his arrival is like a theif, the "rapture" is the final dramatic selection. regonize him before is too late. Remember the Jews 2000 years ago?

***Mt. 24:26 says, "Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not."

***Believers are not of the night, and he won't come upon us as a thief if we are watching and keep our sins confessed. I Thess. 5:2-5 says, " the day of the Lord (the Millennium) so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction (Day of God's Wrath) cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren (believers), are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness."

***Rev. 3:3 does warn the churches, "Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee." If we watch, he will not come on us as a thief. We will be expecting his arrival. Are you ready in case he comes this weekend? We need to have all sins committed since we first accepted Christ confessed and brought under the blood of Christ. See I John 1:9.

***The "open door" is set before the Philadelphians (Rev. 3:8). Rev. 3:16 warns the Laodiceans, "So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."

***Lu. 12:46 says, "The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder (cut him off), and will appoint him his portion (2300 days of the Tribulation) with the UNBELIEVERS."

Mt. 24:51 adds, "And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites (pretenders): there shall be WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH."

Are you ready in case the Rapture is this weekend? Agape

Re: WILL THE RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE BE A SECRET TO THE WORLD? Here's my view, for what it's worth, on a recent question addressed to you and your response. The question was: >>>"Isn't the Rapture secret and not seen by unbelievers, and when we return with Jesus, every eye will see?..."

Your response was: ***"I heard about the "secret Rapture" for years, only to find that Psa. 40:1-3 shows that it will be seen. It says, . . .MANY SHALL SEE IT, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."

My response is, notice it says that MANY shall see it, NOT ALL will see it. This first rapture could indeed be secret to the world. If it was seen by the world physically, it seems it would be harder for the beast that is revealed to explain it away (as probably UFO's abducting them or some other such lie). The MANY that do see it, I believe, are most probably mostly the many laodicean, foolish virgins that have been left behind. I'm not sure whether the "IT" in that verse refers to seeing the physical taking up of the Bride (which is possible) or the event of the rapture in a general sense. In other words, MANY SHALL SEE THAT THE RAPTURE HAS OCCURRED, and as a result will fear, get their lamps burning and finally start trusting in the Lord like they should have been doing in the first place. Also included in the many could be unbelievers that because of being witnessed to before the rapture or being raised in a christian environment but never having surrendering to Jesus, . . . they wake up and become sold out to Him.

I believe it will be a significant number of people who immediately after the rapture SEE (either in a specific or general sense), FEAR and TRUST. They are the many seeds that will be planted at the very beginning that will result in the massive harvest of people at the end of the shortened tribulation seen in Rev. 7. These are they that will take "this gospel going throughout the whole world before the end" (of the shortened tribulation that I discussed in my previous post). So it is very possible that this first rapture could be secret TO THE WORLD. Do you not agree? Your Brother in Jesus

My reply

I think Psa. 40 means that the Rapture will literally be seen by many, as Elisha saw Elijah taken up. That would probably be at random instead of selective. I'm guessing that the foolish Laodicean virgins who see it will be the next evangelists, on fire for the Lord. By the Pre-Wrath Rapture, they have washed their robes in the blood of Christ (Rev. 7:14). They will probably be willing to die for their faith if need be.

The "world," and New Agers, will probably have multiple ridiculous reasons to explain what happened, but the Christians will know the difference. The one worlders will be happy to have us gone, so they will not have to deal with our resistance to their program. Agape

Re: still confuse
I know you don't know me, but I am still confuse, but I thought the rapture would come first, then 7 yrs.later the world would end. Let me tell you about a word from God that I had. This went one for several days in a rows. He would come to me in my dream. In the dream, I am not on the gound nor in heaven, but I am in the air, in front of me is a brown table, and the most beautiful white Bible, I got brown sandle on a white robe, and there is a silver cross on my robe, and there is a left arm with his hand pointing straigt at the Bible, and the Bible is open up to Act, and I hear the voice, and I look up, but I could not see no face at all, just a man in a white robe with no face, and he tell me, to read and learn, and teach, and thell every one the truth from Act-to Rev.

Then he said, I must have this fullfilled with in one years, because my time would be short on this earth, I am a women, and I do not under stand this, he want me to go and tell and learn people the truth, but no one seem to care or want to listen to me.

Then my daughter had a dream, she said an angeles came to her, and told her to tell her brother not to be afraid when the rapture come, they would be taken while they are asleep before the Roaster crow, and not to be afraid.

Is there a patton to these two dream, I talk with our pastor and other people, and they said it was just a dream, because no one know the hour, day or the time, when the rapture will happen, he did not tell us when or what they, he just told me to learn, teach and write and tell every one the truth, and told my kids not to be afraid, and I truely believe it will happen sooner than anyone want to believe.

Do you have an answer for this?

Note: The Jewish watches of the night were originally three, the first watch (from 6 to 10 PM), the middle watch (10 PM to 2 PM), and the morning watch (2 PM to 6 AM). After the Romans ruled, the watches were increased to 4, the first, or even, (6 PM to 9 PM), the second, or midnight (9 PM to midnight), the third, or COCKCROWING (midnight to 3 AM), and fourth, or morning (3 AM to 6 AM).

Subject: "You will not die"
As I was enjoying your site this evening (the letter from the Messianic Pastor), I realized that I was the "woman you correspond with". I thought I would refresh the story you mentioned and add two other confirmations:

When I was driving home from an exceptionally difficult day at work (in the ministry), I came to an intersection where a very matter of fact impression "said" clearly, "You will not die". I argued, "I know that Christians do not see death, Lord." But the clear impression again came, "You are not hearing. You will not die." I prayed over that for several days, but felt absolute peace that the Lord had made it clear that He would return before I died. That was eight years ago and my health has given me cause to be concerned about death on two occasions, but I have held on to that peace.

Some five years ago, my son had a troubling dream: he and I were together in a shopping mall in Seattle when a catastrophic earthquake hit. The very ground gave way beneath us and yet our faith held. He said that the Lord made it clear that everything my son held dear was about to be tested, but that his faith would hold and before the issues were resolved, the Lord would return. Subsequently, three years later, my son's wife without warning handed him her wedding rings and left him, the issues remain unresolved. My son began a highly promising business which continues to promise either wealth or yet unresolved.

I have also had three increasingly intimate dreams of the Lord's return unlike anything I have ever known. While I absolutely agree that Scripture is the only thing upon which we can rely; I had asked the Lord for a dream from Him and have never felt the degree of sadness (over the world), peace (in His presence) or joy (as His Bride) as I did in these dreams. Interestingly, it was spring, and a time of horrific tornadoes (this year may be our worst year for tornadoes).

Finally, my pastor's 83 year old father had a heart attack three years ago. As he lay in intensive care, he said that the Lord promised him that he would be alive at the time of the Lord's return...

May it be this Pentecost, dear Lord, we pray. God bless, dear one, prayerfully together in the air soon!!

My reply

Thanks for reminding me of your experience too. Time is short, no matter how we figure it. Agape Thank you

My reply

Here is the way it looks to me. I think the Pre-Trib Rapture will take place. Then there will be a little space before the covenant of Dan. 27, the Final Status Peace Agreement, is confirmed by the Beast and the False Prophet. The shortened Tribulation should last 2300 days (Dan. 8:14). The Pre-Wrath Rapture will take place on that 2300th day. Then the asteroids of Rev. 8:8,10 will impact Earth and destroy civilization as we know it. That is the Day of God's Wrath. Seven months later (Eze. 39:12), Christ will return on the first day of the Jewish Regnal year and Sacred Year (Eze., 29:17,21). After that comes the Judgment of the Nations and Armageddon. Then Satan will be chained for 1000 years. During that Millennium, called the Day of the Lord, Christ will be the King of kings and Lord of lords. He will refresh the Earth to make it a fit habitat for man.

Maybe you could write letters to your relatives. Share your dream with them and sketch for them what the Bible indicates the future will hold. Maybe some will listen and get ready for the Rapture that would not be ready if you keep silent. To get ready, we all need to confess all known sins since we accepted Christ. See I John 1:9. We are to watch current events and wait patiently. The coming of the Lord is near. The United Religions charter is to be signed June 26, 2000. The One World Government group is having meetings to get it going. The Final Status Peace Agreement is slated to be signed Sept. 13, 2000. We are nearing the end. Agape

Re: 1517
After reading your article Space to Repent, I am confused.

When you present the timeline, where are you getting the starting year of 5278 (1517)?

Also, In the Two Raptures you quote the parable of the fig tree and say that it indicates 2 Raptures. What is the scripture reference for the 2 doors that you mention?

My reply

The year 1517 is when Martin Luther tacked his 95 theses to the church door starting the Reformation and also when the Ottoman Turks took Jerusalem. I just stumbled on this when I was writing my first book. It is so strange, but it seems that God singled out 6 blocks of years in the 400s and saw to it that they were listed in Scripture. When you add them to 1517, the outcome is startling.

Mt. 24:32-34 says, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the DOORS. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." There are two Raptures, so "doors" is plural. Rev. 3:8 says, "I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee AN OPEN DOOR, and no man can shut it." Then Rev. 4:1 says, "behold, a DOOR was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither." That is when the first door opens.

Heaven is spoken of as having doors, plural. Psa. 73:23,24 says, "he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the DOORS OF HEAVEN, And had rained down manna upon them to eat."

Isa. 26:20 says, "Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy DOORS about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast." This is the day of the Pre-Wrath Rapture, just before the Wrath of God hits Earth.

Believers are the spiritual temple. In Eze. 41.23, the temple doors are mentioned. It says, "And the temple and the sanctuary had TWO DOORS." There is a Pre-Trib Rapture for the wise Philadelphian virgins and a Pre-Wrath Rapture for the Tribulation saints, which includes the foolish Laodicean virgins, the 144,000 Jews, plus many others out of every nation. The group seen in Rev. 5:9 is in Heaven after the first door opens. This is before the first seal is broken in Rev. 6 to kick off the Tribulation. The group seen in Rev. 7:14 is in Heaven after the second door opens. This is between the breaking of the 6th (Rev. 6:12) and 7th seals (Rev. 8). This is the Pre-Wrath Rapture.

The "open door" is set before the Philadelphians. There is no condemnation mentioned for them. All their sins must already be confessed and brought under the blood of Christ. The Laodiceans face the closed door of Rev. 3:20. They are spued out of his mouth and left behind for chastisement (Rev. 3:16,19). When they get to Heaven, they will have washed their robes in the blood of Christ (Rev. 7:14).

The two Raptures are the two trumps of God. The first "TRUMP OF GOD" sounds in I Thess. 4:16. The second, or "LAST TRUMP" sounds in I Cor. 15:51,52. These were prefigured by the two silver trumpets.

Nu. 10:2-4 says, " Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them FOR THE CALLING OF THE ASSEMBLY (Heb. 12:23), and for the JOURNEYING of the camps. And when they shall blow with them (BOTH, i.e., the LAST TRUMP), ALL (I Cor. 15:51,52) the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the DOOR of the tabernacle of the congregation. And if they blow but with ONE TRUMPET, then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel (i.e., the elders, 12 patriarchs and 12 apostles), shall gather themselves unto thee." Agape
